MESA --
The Freedreno driver that provides open-source, reverse-engineered graphics support for the Qualcomm Adreno graphics hardware is continuing to pick up new functionality.

The latest work hitting Mesa Git master for Freeedreno while other developers are working on the OpenGL 4 support in Mesa for the main drivers is transform-feedback.

OpenGL Transform Feedback has been required since OpenGL 3.0 and has now been added in Freedrenon. Those unfamiliar with OpenGL's Transform Feedback can read about the technical details at OpenGL.org.

Overall, Rob Clark continues to do a great job continuing to work on this hobby driver in mainline Mesa with frequent code activity as can be seen from this Git look.
